34 years male, overweight, 5-11'' and 227 pounds. lost about 50 pounds. I have been experiencing irregular heart beat for the past 3 years. Sometimes, it feels that the heart is going to stop and I do get diziness for a "micro" second. see
CT Angio: Mild (less than 50%) stenosis in the proximal and mid LAD due to non calcific plaque. Mild Stenosis (less than 50%) in the distal LAD due to calcific and non calcific plaque
Holter and Event Recorder: PVC, I was told there is nothing serious
Echocardiogram: Normal but showed the RV systolic function little bit reduced and asked for a MRI. LV is completley normal.
Extensive Blood Work:
Chesltrol = 151
Triglycerides = 92
HDL = 55
LDL = 78
Homocysteine = 10 umol/L
LP(a) = 0.11 g/l
hs-CRP = done twice, first it was 3.3 than 6.4 mg/l
EKG = normal
Normal-high BP (138/79)
I do not smoke at all. no alcohol and no drugs whatsoever. I do take the following supplements on daily basis:
-fish oil 4000mg
Father has pacemaker and mother has HBP. I exercise regularly. The other day I was at the gym and was engaged in a group exercise class and almost fainted (I was well hydrated though). Also, the same night, I experienced irregular pounding heart beat after sexual intercourse. Also, during sessions of masturbation, I experience irregular heart beat. I was wondering if you could comment on my condition. I am really concerned about my condition.
I have chronic prostatis and I believe that it might be contributing to it.
Is there any way to reverse the plaque in my arteries?
Do I have significant plaques?
Can this plaque be causing all of these symptoms?
What kind of risk I have for stroke or heart attack (low, medium, high)?
Can masturbation cause sudden heart stop due to adrenaline (SAD?)?
If I loose weight, will it help my heart condition?
Should i be taking stains (to even further lower LDL and hs-crp)?
